Whole30 Crab Cakes with Lemon Balsamic Salad

You might have seen the Whole30 diet floating around lately and after hearing so much hype about it, I decided to try it for myself. Whole30 focuses on "whole" foods like veggies, fruits, and proteins while excluding grains, legumes, and dairy. Sounds pretty straightforward, right? Yeah, that's what I thought too until I was literally having dreams about yogurt and coffee creamer about three days in...

One thing I did appreciate about that diet was that it forced me to experiment with new recipes and even alter old recipes in ways I never have before. Take the crab cake for instance, by subbing out the breadcrumbs for almond flour, you're adding more protein and I even preferred the texture this provided as opposed to the bread crumb alternative.

I pretty much used what I had available in the fridge, but feel free to get a little more wild with your salad. Add some carrots, diced peppers, or even sub lettuce for shredded cabbage and make a slaw instead!


  1. How did you do on the Whole30 thing?

  2. Not gonna lie, it was tough! It's nice to do about once a year for a cleanse/reset though.


I'd love to hear from you!
